Infernal Instruments of the Dragon

A Harmony Ink Press Title

Infernal Instruments of the Dragon

As the British Empire builds power based on new clockwork and steam technology, Ireland draws its might from its potent magical traditions. Only two boys with little in common can end the fighting between the two nations and prevent a terrible worldwide war.

Gavin Haveland’s dreams are in the sky with the airships, while his reality as a High Councilman’s son means hiding secrets that will get him executed if revealed.

Orion of Oberon is not just a powerful mage, he’s the nephew of the Irish queen, and the one she’s sent him on a quest for the ancient Dragon Stones that will bolster her fading power. In the process, he might restore his family to their rightful place in society.

With enemies determined to stop them by any means necessary and war or peace hinging on their success, Gavin and Orion must find a way to work together, despite the centuries of mistrust between their nations.

È sexy. È pericoloso. E non ricorda nulla. 

Joe Applin, il proprietario dell’Apple’N Pies, conduce una vita tranquilla e monotona e trascorre le giornate a servire clienti che vengono da ogni parte della città per gustare le sue deliziose torte fatte in casa. Insieme al suo bizzarro staff, Joe vive felice nel suo piccolo regno fatto di dolci e caffè. 

L’esperienza gli ha insegnato che l’amore è sopravvalutato e talvolta pericoloso. Non ha intenzione di ripetere gli errori del passato, ma poi incontra un uomo bellissimo e misterioso, senza nome e senza memoria, e non può negare che ci sia del tenero nell’aria. Non è tipo da correre rischi, né con il proprio cuore né tantomeno con la propria vita, ma più tempo passa con “Tom”, più rischia di perdere entrambi.

Als der Paläontologe Nick Eisenberg erfährt, dass jemand glaubt, in Alberta Velociraptor-Knochen gefunden zu haben, übersteigt seine Neugierde seinen Wunsch, in London zu bleiben. Schließlich ist er einer der weltweit führenden Experten für prähistorische Raubtiere und wollte schon immer die nordamerikanischen Verwandten des Velociraptors aufspüren. Es gibt nur ein Problem: den Umweltschützer Hunter Joseph. Während Nick die Ausgrabung überwacht, scharrt Hunter die Anwohner um sich und protestiert gegen die Zerstörung der Landschaft durch Nicks Team auf der Suche nach Dinosaurierknochen.

Nick und Hunter werden einfach nicht miteinander warm. Hunter ist selbstgerecht und mürrisch, Nick ein engstirniger Nerd. Trotzdem müssen sie einen Weg finden, am selben Ort zu arbeiten, ohne sich gegenseitig an die Gurgel zu gehen, vor allem, da jemand anderes entschlossen scheint, Nick mehr Probleme zu bereiten, als er sich je hätte vorstellen können.

Der Scheidungsanwalt Clayton Reynolds ist ein überzeugter Zyniker, der an harte Arbeit und One-Night-Stands glaubt. Außerdem ist er der Meinung, dass er als exzellenter Anwalt nie mehr nach Hause – in die elende Wohnwagensiedlung, in der er aufgewachsen ist – zurückkehren muss. Mit ehrenamtlicher Arbeit für ein Frauenhaus versucht er das schlechte Gewissen zu beruhigen, das ihn gelegentlich plagt. Als Nadine Graham mit einem gebrochenen Arm und einem Sohn erscheint, den sie verzweifelt beschützen will, kann Clayton ihre Bitte um Hilfe daher nicht abschlagen.

Die Annahme des Falls bedeutet jedoch auch, den Ermittlungsbeamten „nennt mich einfach nur Kelly“ um Unterstützung bitten zu müssen. Das wäre gar nicht so schlimm, wenn Kelly nicht ein hoffnungsloser Romantiker wäre und außerdem der heißeste Mann, dem Clayton je begegnet ist.

Kelly hat immer schon für den unerreichbaren Clayton Reynolds geschwärmt. Er willigt ein, zu helfen, obwohl er mit dem mutterlosen Baby, das sein verwitweter Bruder bei ihm gelassen hat, eigentlich schon genug um die Ohren hat.

Als Nadines Fall eine gefährliche Wendung nimmt und die zwei scheinbar gegensätzlichen Männer zur Zusammenarbeit gezwungen werden, entdecken sie, dass sie sehr viel gemeinsam haben. Die Lösung des Falls und die Rettung von Nadines Leben könnten Kelly jedoch alles kosten.

Never a Hero

Tucker Springs

A Tucker Springs Novel

Charming, handsome Nick steals past Owen’s defenses and makes him feel almost normal. Meeting his fiery, determined little sister, June, who was born with a similar amputation, helps too. June always seems to get her way—she even convinces Owen to sign up for piano lessons with her. Suddenly the only thing standing between Owen and his perfect life is Nick. No matter how much he flirts, how attracted to Owen he seems to be, or how much time they spend together, Nick always pulls away.

Caught between his mother’s contempt and Nick’s stubbornness, Owen makes a decision. It’s time to be the hero of his own story, and that means going after what he wants: not just Nick, but the full life he deserves.
